Yahoo! Desktop Search Beta

While this doesn’t hold a candle to Tiger’s Spotlight, this is probably as good as it gets when it comes to Windows. On the fly search results through indexing of your computer’s data means:
Faster searching on your Windows computer. It also searches Yahoo Messenger chat logs and Thunderbird email and email attachments. Just beware of stashing those pictures of Jessica Simpson in plain view of the indexer. Yeah, you know what we’re talking about…
Get Yahoo! Desktop Search Beta here. Requires Windows XP or
Windows 2000 SP 3+.

It might not sound that bad, until you accidentally pull up an important system file and hit “delete”. *grin*
